Roasted jalapeno guacamole burgers

I think I found my new favorite burger. You might think these burgers would be spicy, but they’re oh so sweet and have just a hint of spice. When you roast up jalapenos and remove the seeds, they take on a delicious sweet and lightly spicy flavor. I used 3 medium sized jalapenos and was a bit nervous it might be too spicy, but it was just right. In fact, a little more heat would have been nice, so I added it into the guacamole on top. You can use a little diced raw jalapeno or cayenne pepper in your guacamole to give it some kick. I use 80/20 lean ground beef for my hamburgers. You can roast the jalapenos ahead of time to make final preparation quick and easy. These are gluten free as long as you use a gluten free bun. No need to add in breadcrumbs or extra filler. You can also skip the bun and wrap it in a nice crispy piece of lettuce.

Ingredients

3 medium sized jalapenos, roasted in olive oil (see below)
1 tbsp olive oil
About 1 and ¼ lb lean ground beef (more or less = 1 average sized supermarket package)
½ cup sweet onion, diced
2-3 tbsp fresh cilantro
1 egg, beaten
Salt and pepper
½ garlic clove, crushed (if desired)

Method

To roast the jalapenos, preheat the oven to 375 F. Cut the stems off the jalapenos. Cut each one in half length-wise and remove the seeds. Place in a bowl and mix them in olive oil. Season with a sprinkling of salt. Place them on a baking tray and into the oven. Wash your hands thoroughly. Raw jalapenos are very spicy and you don’t want to get any residue into your eye by accident. After about 6-7 minutes, turn them over. Roast another 5-6 minutes. Set aside to cool. In a small food processor, add the roasted jalapenos, about 1 tsp of olive oil and a little salt and pepper. Pulse until it is chopped well. Little chunks are ok. If you don’t have a food processor, you can just finely chop the jalapenos, place into a bowl and mix in a little olive oil. At this point, you can store the jalapenos in the refrigerator for a couple days until final preparation.

In a large bowl, add the ground beef, onion, cilantro, roasted jalapeno, egg, salt and pepper and garlic (if desired). Mix all ingredients. Form ¼ lb patties and set aside ready for the grill. Grill the hamburgers until well done.

Serve topped with homemade guacamole and your favorite burger toppings such as tomato, cheddar cheese, lettuce and a pickle.
